About Us

BookKids is the children’s department of BookPeople, the largest independent bookstore in Texas, and one of the proud purveyors of Austin’s famously “weird” vibe. And with about 4,000 square feet just for us, BookKids alone is one of the largest children’s bookstores in Texas.

If you’re in town, come to BookPeople and listen for lots of laughter and crazy noise and it will probably lead you up to the second floor and the bright green walls of BookKids!
